The Morris J. and Betty Kaplun Foundation seeks to encourage young people to treasure our Jewish heritage, reflect on our Jewish values, and better understand our contribution to civilization and culture. To this effort, the Foundation sponsors an annual essay contest open to both junior high and high school students. The Foundation also issues grants to a wide variety of educational, scientific and charitable institutions whose humanitarian goals are in keeping with the objectives of the Foundation. The Foundation does not, however, honor individual requests for assistance.

Established in 1955, the Morris J. and Betty Kaplun Foundation, is a non-profit philanthropic organization underscoring the eleemosynary, humanitarian and Jewish concerns of its founders, Morris J. and Betty Kaplun. The Kapluns, who were refugees from Nazi persecution, dedicated their lives to a variety of philanthropic causes. The Foundation endeavors to continue their good work.
